NOSA Indoor Shooting at Arnone Range -- 18 Sep 2019 through 29 Apr 2020

The fall to spring indoor regular shooting schedule begins at Arnone Range:
--- on Wednesday, 18 Sep 2019 for Junior Shooters;
--- on Friday, 20 Sep 2019 for Adult Shooters.

Be sure to attend regularly and practice up for the traditional NOSA indoor shoots. And it is always good fun talking and joking with your fellow members on these evenings.

The club normally shoots indoors on these evenings until the end of April (with sometimes an extension into May):
Wednesdays for Juniors from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Fridays for Adults from 6:30 p.m. to 8:50 p.m.



Annual Special Indoor Shoots

Details and dates will be announced in advance, but here is a general idea of the special shoots that usually occur during our indoor period.

Juniors traditionally have a shoot at Halloween and Christmas and Valentines and Easter as well as end of indoors. Adults generally have special shoots at Christmas and Easter and end of indoors. In all cases, there are some fine prizes.
